On the journey through life, my train often takes a layover at Procrastination Station. Couple that with a busy schedule, and Iím even late getting there.
Recently, I traveled to Los Angeles, where I stayed a week, then flew to Cleveland, saw friends and family, then rented a car, and drove four hours to Cincinnati, where I stayed two days before returning to Cleveland on Saturday evening. That night, I had a performance scheduled for Yalla, a gala show at Bohemian National Hall.
